Good afternoon everyone
a customer of ours purchased a Dell server a few months ago, and it came with their OEM edition of Windows Server 2008 R2. We sell Hp units so we were not involved with much on this machine, until we get a notification that they have 6 says to back up their data and install a full version of the software.
I have found a previous posting
Pre Release Upgrade
This shows someone upgraded with a full version over top of their VM host install without issues.
But this customer as all eggs in one basket with this install. Domain Controller, SQL server, Printer server, File Server, Terminal Server and Web Server.... Not even close to ideal, but it is their only server...
Has anyone done an in place upgrade to a server with this much on it before? And were you successful? I just have one of those feelings this is going to be messy no matter what i do. And wondering if it would be better to start from scratch on this one...
